for my first entry, i just wanted to finish. not exactly how i wanted it (cuz the fenders won't fit the forks and that problem i can't fix/replace untill after 8/2), but i still like it. before... given to me, along with a few other bikes by the maintnence man where i work, it was exactly what i was lookin for. for awhile, i wanted to find an old cruiser to build up for my wife, and here i get one for free. this was back in feburary. a total deconstruction, repaint and rebuild useing the oem wheels and repacking all bearings, i finally got her put together today. the fenders i wanted to put on , wouldn't fit with the whitewalls in the forks, so (at least for now), i did away with the fenders untill i can find a doner "unicrown fork" that is wide enough for the fenders and tires. i also want to upgrade the seat to something more comfortable for my wife, since this bike IS for her.
